This is the way I throw this fish together. I have tons of frozen tilapia in my freezer and this works for me - easy and low-sodium.


  1. Melt butter and add lemon juice to taste.
  2. Lay tilapia filets in a broiler-safe pan.
  3. Brush each side with butter/lemon mixture.
  4. Broil, turning often and basting with butter till fish begins to flake easily.
  5. On last round, add pepper and a sprinkling of Old Bay seasoning on each side.
  6. Eat. It's yummy and good for you!

This was really good. I did cut the butter down. I only used a tablespoon per fillet. I also didn't add any lemon juice. I used 6 fillets and cooked at 350 for 30 minutes. We all enjoyed this.

This was very good. It came out moist but just a tad bland (for my tastes). I'll make it again, but with lots more lemon juice and a tiny bit of salt.
